Elon Musk Thanks Norway For Its Electric Car Support, Confirms “Some 400,000” Model 3 Reservations
While in Norway, Tesla CEO Elon Musk “delivered a heartfelt and grateful «thank you» to Christina Bu of the Norwegian EV Association” for the nation’s incredible support of electric cars, according to Elbil.no.
“Norway is a world leader when it comes to electric mobility. Your political incentives represent a great catalyst for the fantastic EV adoption, and you have fought for sustainable transport for more than 20 years. Not to forget renewable energy.”
But then posed this question to Musk:
Q: Mr. Musk, how do you feel about 11,000 Model S vehicles having found their way to Norway?
“Norway is a really important market for us, and the contribution from the Norwegian EV Association is highly appreciated. What you have done is very important for the transition to sustainable transport in general.”
Model 3 was brought up during the conversation too and it’s these comments from Musk that reveal how he truly feels about Model 3 mania:
“100,000 would have been an impressive number. Now, with some 400,000 pre-orders, the number is almost unbelievable. I can´t wait to bring it to Norway. The Model 3 was probably the real wake up call for the rest of the industry. No one seemed to care when the Roadster was launched.”
“Now the electric vehicle is finally nearing its real breakthrough.”
